I'm not even sure if this is a good price. What is this?

I think I want to buy it now, so I can ride it when I'm 90.

Hmm... 28 speeds...

Nigel Tufnel: The gears all go to 28. Look, right across the shifter, 28
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most bikes go up to 27?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's faster? Is it any faster?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one faster, isn't it? It's not 27. You see, most blokes, you know, will be riding at 27. You're on 27 here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on 27 on your bike. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to 28.
Nigel Tufnel: 28. Exactly. One faster.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make 27 faster and make 27 be the top number and make that a little faster?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to 28.

That might make a cool cx bike with a rebuild? Geometry might be off though.

Looks like "The Master" was drunk on flux when he signed this one.
